Tracking Your Visitors The Right Way: Google Analytics And HiStats

This month I’m quite busy with my trips, my jobs and online business stuffs. So I hardly have time to update my blog. Since 2 months ago, I started “Niche Site Project” epic tutorials from scratch along the way how I built it, how I created contents, and everything that involve with this project. Last week, I was thinking about this topic during my routine work. So today I’ll tell you about tools and techniques that I’ve used to tracking number of visitors that come to my websites.

If you haven’t known these tools yet, I will show you how to use it. OK, let’s get started!

HiStats

HiStats.Com . is a great way to keep track of the REAL-TIME number of people who are visiting your site, where they came from and how much time they spent on certain pages. I’ve used this tool since the beginning of my online business journey. There are many types of tracking code that you can put into your website. When you sign-up for FREE HiStats account, add your website information, get your code and put this code into your website. You will see website stats just like picture below. This is the real stats from my blog, Be Rich And Rich

How To Sign Up For HiStats Account

This tool is very easy to use and sign-up. The sign-up processes are as follows:

–       Go to www.histats.com, then select menu REGISTER

–       Enter your information in required fields, ex email, confirm email, password and confirm password

–       Enter correct captcha code to protect SPAM, then select Register button

–       You need to check your mailbox to activate your HiStats account.

–       Then login to Your HiStats Control Panel

How To TRACK your website with HiStats

–       Login to Your HiStats Control Panel

–       Select Add a website

–       Enter Your Website Information, Time Zone, Website Category

–       Select Stats visibility that visible to everyone or just you!

–       Enter captcha code and continue

–       Now you have your “website tracking id” to track your visitors through HiStats

From now, there are many way to create your counter style and put it into your website. For me, I prefer to use standard counter code and put this code into header area or footer area with show nothing on my website. But HiStats still works properly.

HiStats standard counter code is something like this. Just paste this code in your HTML editor where you would like to display the counter, at the bottom of the page, in a table, div or under a menu.

<!– Histats.com START (standard)–>
<script type=”text/javascript”>document.write(unescape(“%3Cscript src=%27http://s10.histats.com/js15.js%27 type=%27text/javascript%27%3E%3C/script%3E”));</script>
<a href=”http://www.histats.com” target=”_blank” title=”counter hit xanga” ><script type=”text/javascript” >
try {Histats.start(1,xxxxxx,4,511,95,18,”00000000″);
Histats.track_hits();} catch(err){};
</script></a>
<noscript><a href=”http://www.histats.com” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://sstatic1.histats.com/0.gif?xxxxxx&101″ alt=”counter hit xanga” border=”0″></a></noscript>
<!– Histats.com END –>

You can copy this code and paste into your WordPress theme tracking area, for example header area, footer area, WordPress plugin area, WordPress widget area and etc.

So you’re ready to tracking your VISITORS with HiStats! It’s very easy, right?

OK, we’ve had another popular tool that we will talk about, Google Analytics!

How To Use Google Analytics?

Google Analytics, also like HiStats, is a great way to keep track of the number of people, who are visiting your site. But it’s not real-time visitors when compare with HiStats.

This tool helps you understand all visitors, which where they came from, what they like and dislike, how they got to your site and etc.

All you need is signed up for Google account, and then you can get started using Google Analytics tool for FREE.

Then you can add it to your website, by following these directions:

  • Logon to WordPress Dashboard
  • Go to Plugins, Select Installed Plugins
  • Select Add New, Search for Google analytics plugin
  • Then Install Now and Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  • Go to the options panel under the ‘Settings’ menu and add your Analytics account number and set the settings you want.

Within 24 hours you will be able to track data through your site, including traffic, time spent on the site and more! This is a great way to analyze who comes to your site and when, which will allow you to time posts for a higher viewership. You will see website stats just like picture below. This is the real stats from my blog, Be Rich And Rich.
